Silver Balanced Interconnects
Highest performing interconnect cable
The Linn Silver balanced interconnect cable is our highest performing interconnect cable.
If your audio equipment has high quality balanced inputs and outputs, the Linn Silver balanced interconnect cable will let you hear just how much better this can sound than an ‘unbalanced’ interconnection.
In addition to the internal balanced conductors it has a double shield, providing electrical noise screening from mains frequencies up to hundreds of MHz. It is silent cable in every sense and will reveal the best performance from the highest quality balanced audio products. It is particularly worthwhile for longer cable runs, for example to power amplifiers located near loudspeakers, or to power integrated active loudspeakers.
Low loss, extensive shielding
Linn Silver interconnect cable shares the same low capacitance, low loss dielectric of the Black interconnect cable but has much more extensive shielding.
In any environment with electrical noise present, this is a real benefit. The stiffer construction formed by the heavy double-braided shielding makes the cable much more robust and essentially free of microphony.

One of the benefits of a balanced cable is that the audio signal is carried separately on the two inner conductors, leaving the shield to carry any noisy ground currents.
The inner conductors and insulation on the Black balanced interconnect cable have a similar construction to our standard Black interconnect cable, surrounded by a braided shield and a flexible outer jacket.
Linn ‘Black’ interconnect cable is our standard cable for connecting Majik or Akurate components in a Linn system.
This cable is derived from the low capacitance polystyrene dielectric cable used originally to carry the signal from a turntable and cartridge to a pre-amplifier. This ‘phono’ signal is probably the most demanding of all signals in any audio system, usually less than one thousandth of the signal between a CD player and an amplifier. A cable good enough to handle this signal will accurately transfer any other low level audio signals in an audio or AV system.
